A leader in flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, Lancope, Inc, spoke at Interop (News - Alert) Las Vegas discussing the changing network management landscape. The discussion titled "Advances in Network Management" took place on May 12, from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. The conference was moderated by Jim Frey, managing research director at Enterprise Management Associates, Inc., and looked at the most promising emerging network management technologies for today's dynamic, fast-paced network environments.
In a press release, Adam Powers, CTO of Lancope and a speaker on the panel, said, “Today's IT administrators face infinitely greater challenges than they did in previous years. Traditional network management and security tools are no longer enough to maintain secure, high-performance networks in the current technology environment. Fortunately, in recent years, the industry has developed several network and security innovations that fill in the gaps where traditional tools leave off, empowering IT teams to effectively address current and future challenges.”
The discussion highlighted the constant demand for high network performance and 24/7 availability and this has become the norm for most enterprise IT teams. With the continuous influx of new devices, increased traffic volumes and innovative trends like virtualization and IT consumerization, and network management looks very different now than it has in the past.
